There isn't really a way to post a response to a review, so I'm posting in the review form; I'll give myself a 3-star (hey, I like myself) and clarify responses to Pole.
In case anyone's wondering, the Internet Archive automatically notifies uploaders about the posting of reviews, which is why I saw this so quickly.
"I have now wathced a couple of the bbs interviews, but i'm becomming increasingly frustrated... although the topic matter interrests me i cant help but get really annoyed by the interviewer who is seemingly unprepared and prone to long monologues made even more unbearable by his speach deficiency..."
I can't speak for my quality of speech or what you're hearing; as far as I know I don't have a speech impediment/deficiency, but I do have an accent.
"Some tips: 1.Prepare questions, 2.Show examples of the art or whatever is talked about (the lack of examples is actually more annoying than the interviewer) 3. Edit the interview! not everything the guy says is interesting, and what the interviewer is saying is just horrible"
Here, I think, is a fundmental misunderstanding as to what these interviews are.
The interviews are raw, truly raw footage from a documentary I shot called "BBS: The Documentary". That documentary is 5 and a half hours in eight episodes, and contains 250 hours of footage distilled down to the 5.5. My questions, the answers, and all the rest have been intercut between the 200 interviews I did, given music, illustrative art, and all the "usual" stuff you would expect. It is a commercial product, and is available at bbsdocumentary.com
This is literately the full interview with Tracer, including my chatting with him, coming up with questions, and discussing what he could remember of the subject (which, as you saw, was very variant; it was 10 years ago at that point and he'd gotten some pretty involved living in there).
"4. Dont call Errol Morris a "nut"... he is after all one of the greatest docu directors on the planet... i'm surprised that the interviewer had actually read anything about Morris but then dismissing him as a "nut" thats just ignorant..."
I have read extensively on Morris both in his own words and the words of others, I have seen all of his films and I own several of them on DVD, and I have seen a lot of his commercial work. Errol Morris is a nut.
"5.Find people that you actually want to listen to speak..."
Tracer was hesitant about this interview and didn't think he'd have much to contribute. He did, in fact, and passages from this interview showed up in the final episode about ANSI art in the BBS Documentary.
"1 Star for the topic matter. sorry for the outburst but i got really frustrated by this one, especially because i thought the topic was interesting.."
I am sorry that you misunderstood this as a completed, edited work instead of being a full raw interview uploaded for the use of students, historians and other (as yet unforseen) uses.
